Oldie but goodie: Soul Defender is a beta flash game I created back in college. Control the ninja with the mouse, and control the the angel with the arrow keys. Each press of an arrow key increases the angel’s speed in the corresponding direction. Pro Score is 8000, good luck!

My brother just started a new webcomic…he illustrates and a friend writes. I dig it, recommended for all gamers. (I just so happened to make the website for him as well) http://www.unicorn-soup.com/
